Looking at my car in the pic it looks pretty good but it does have a couple door dings. I have the correct touch up paint to touch up the spots and will buff the car out seeing that it hasn't been done in a few years. From the looks of the car would you repaint or will doing a good touch up job suffice? I also have new Porsche graphics to apply and it now has wheel caps since this pic was taken. I'm not showing the car or anything it is just a weekend driver. Excuse the pic of the driver but it was the only picture I have to post at the time.

Wow that does look good. Depending on the dings I'd touch it up. If they aren't that noticable. You know you're gonna get more dings anyway as a daily driver save the money for all those other little things you might need.
Yellow was the original color of my car but it was painted badly white before I got it. To save money on a decent paint job I had it repainted white again. Here's a pic. They did great job on mine but I sooo much like the yellow better.. in fact I think I like every color better than white. Wouldn't ya know....

If the dings are bad enough, and someone can match the color well enough, you could just paint the damaged panel(s) after repairs. Looks real nice from here...I say "DRIVE IT!"

The door dings are hardly noticible unless your in the right light. Also what is the Wizard tool your speaking of?

actually "Dent Wizard" is a franchise around this area (Northeast). In most cases, a guy (dent wizard) will come to your home or office and remove those dings.

I had one removed from my 914. A gas attendant smacked the side of the car with the filler nozzle. It left a dime size ding.
The dent wizard guy accesses the dent from underneath the area and massages the dent out with a long metal rod. He proped it up from the tire and rubbed it right out...I watched...very cool. The trick was having these mirrors set up so he could see the dent disappear while working it.

in my case I had to take my 914 to a dealer. but most of the time they will find you....

Also called paintless dent removal. Should be easy enough to find one in your area. Or call your local Porsche dealer and see who they use.

no filler....if you decide to do this ask them about their process. If it's necessary to remove the interior stuff off the door, YOU DO IT!! You'll save cash and they wont fuch everything up!!!
